  • So, it's called stinky tofu because it is stinky. Beautiful.

  • Oh? Oh.

  • Stinky tofu is basically fermented tofu that's deep fried.

  • It comes usually with pickled cabbage, a sweet and salty sauce, and chili sauce.

  • I always make a point to get stinky tofu whenever I visit a night market in Taiwan.

  • The smell was definitely something that I didn't like at first, and I've really grown to love the taste of stinky tofu.

  • So, today I'm going to be sharing this dish with some of my co-workers and I'm really excited to see what they think of it.

  • Hmm.

  • It smells like old shrimp.

  • It smells like armpit, gym socks.

  • It smells like like wet pennies.

  • (coughing)

  • Let's get a close up on Kane's eyes, 'cause they're watering a little bit.

  • (coughing and laughing)

  • Wow, that's good.

  • I don't like it at all.

  • It's got an aftertaste.

  • The aftertaste is like the smell.

  • It's good. Yeah?

  • The texture is nice, I will say that.

  • The equivalent of what I imagine, like, gym socks would taste like in, like, a seventh grader's locker that were there for like six months.

  • Oh my god, you're killing me, but also, also I can see it.

  • I'm kind of into it.

  • She doesn't like it.

  • I have mixed feelings.

  • This sauce is dope.

  • These sauces are really great. Trying to convince.

  • Definitely soaking the insides is, like, key.

  • Do people eat this, like, in their homes mainly, or like out in the open?

  • It's very much street food.

  • Okay, 'cause they don't want the smell, I'm assuming, to, like, get trapped in their house.

  • I don't think, no matter if you're Taiwanese or not, I don't think you want that smell, like, persisting. Yeah.

  • It's definitely an acquired taste.

  • It's like just left of being really good, you know what I mean? I think it's fine, honestly.

  • It's just very new.

  • It's just very new. It's new, yeah.

  • Maybe I'll like it the next time around.

  • Okay so, a lot less people liked it than I thought they would, and I'm not insulted that a lot of people didn't like this because there are Taiwanese people that don't like this either.

  • Like my friend said before, it's an acquired taste and plus, it means more for me, right?

  • Hmm

  • You guys want some?

So, it's called stinky tofu because it is stinky. Beautiful.
